Where the hell is Batman!?

I hope I am wrong because the agreement is a little confusing/vague in some areas. But Purple Rain, Parade, Batman and Graffiti Bridge were not given over to Sony distribution and therefor cannot be included in this reissue campaign, which is a massive massive shame. 

 

Bring on The Rainbow Children though, cannot wait for that one.

Yep you are correct, so nothing on them unless Warners reissues them, or they move to Sony at some later date.

 

Can't imagine Warners wouldn't do something for Batman, had thought that this year would be perfect with it being the 80th anniversary of the character and the 30th anniversary of the film/soundtrack.

Shortly after the (original) reissue campaign was announced, I was lucky to find OP versions of GB and Batman for $20 apiece. Very glad I snagged them as the original preorders got cancelled thereafter and it doesn't look like either of those are coming anytime soon.

 

Still a bit confused why the Batman 12" singles got reissued by WB in 2017... but not the album itself. Seems a big missed opportunity there.

 

And speaking of opportunities missed..... Sony decides to release a promo cassette on vinyl, along with Prince's bloated 3-CD set that used to go for $5 used AND one of his weaker contract filler WB albums. Not released: Love Symbol, Black Album, Come, and Gold Experience.... which all go for $50-$300 apiece now.

According to that Variety article Love Symbol doesn't transfer to Sony until 2021 & the Black Album isn't part of the Sony agreement along with "several albums from the latter half of Prince’s career" which are not named.  There could also be problems with The Gold Experience due to the very long running copyright issues over the Most Beautiful  Girl In The World.

Yeah, in hindsight my double-LP gold promo version of Gold Experience is gonna wind up the most valuable record I own. Amazing the 3 corporations that own all music ever recorded can't get their shit together in 2019, but there you go.

Doubly frustrating about Black Album since it was on that now-laughable "coming soon" vinyl reissue list from years ago. Weren't some sites taking preorders?

Was just thinking yesterday about when more of these were coming as it’s been a while. Haven’t heard the live stuff but it’s intriguing.

Rainbow Children is super-underrated and prophetic in terms of Prince from then on in going down a more acoustic path (with some obvious exceptions), delving into historical black music genres like proto-funk and New Orleans second-line big-band sounds. Kind of like how Dylan retreated deeper into 20th Century pop-music past during the same time
